You guys don't watch much sports do you? Offence wins you games. Defence wins you titles. Look at the leaders of every league. It's the teams that have conceded the least amount of goals, not the ones who scored the most.
You are confusing correlation with causation. Show me a top team and I’ll show you a team with capable midfielders and attackers.
Offense wins games, defence wins championships... well we aren’t winning games and sure as hell not winning any championships so I don’t know the point of this generality in regards to the topic of our NT.
Goals will always be there for us....FALSE! Outside of that flukey and suspect match against Iceland, we have not managed to score an open play goal against any form of credible opposition since Xhakas goal against Israel to open Nations League. Forget Spain and France, we are huge underdogs(been embarassed) against the likes of Turkey and Scotland, and are on pace to soon fall behind Kosovo and North Macedonia(if we haven’t already) to compete with Cyprus for the title of worst team in the region. Under the watch of Edi reja, this distinction will soon surely be ours. You can be euphoric about the transfermarkt value of our defenders but you are in for a rude awakening when they take the pitch and start eating goals like we’ve gotten so accustomed to these last few years.
The difference between Debiasi albania and the current squad is the midfield.. De biasi had prime abrashi, basha, kukeli, xhaka, and kace under his disposal. As these men have departed from the NT, their loss has been felt, and we find ourselves in a dire situation as today. Without decent midfielders, the future is dark for our NT.
